Is there anything #OccupyWallStreet protesters will not chant responsively?  Apparently not. "Jump the shark" doesn't begin to describe this sequence of responsive chanting (I think they call it human microphone or whatever). We saw the responsive chanting at Occupy Atlanta, but this one takes the cake, as the...

We've seen this before, at the celebration of Obama's victory in 2008, where students unfurled the Soviet flag in celebration. I chalked that up to profound historical ignorance, much like the chic wearing of Che Guevara and Mao t-shirts. The carrying of the Soviet flag at the Occupy...

You may not know it, but the internet hacking group Anonymous helped launch the Occupy Wall Street movement with a video released in late August:. During the initial protests in New York, protesters attempted to use masks similar to those used in the video, but were...

When this sticker was put on the car, the owner probably figured things were not yet out of control.  But after three weeks of #OccupyMadness, no question mark is needed. From Larry in Miami (who must have been stopped on the interstate when he took this...

On October 7, self-styled Occupy Wall Street reporter Allison Burtch, the proponent of "progressive stack" speech control, gave this advice to the #OccupyWallStreet movement: Which goes to prove, don't wish too hard for something, you just might get it....

I've warned you not to take at face value the depictions of the protesters at the Occupy Wall Street rallies. Andrew Cole, the focus of a sympathetic New York Times article, turned out to be a pretty hard core solicialist (by his own description) and former...

No, not Occupy Wall Street or Occupy anything. That was the estimate by Nate Silver (then of 538 blog, now of The NY Times) of the April 15, 2009 Tax Day Tea Parties.  Silver noted the upward adjustment of the Tea Party rally in Atlanta from...

Thanks to commenter Mutnodjmet for reminding me: PS.  Just to let you know, in light of Palin’s decision, I am promoting OPERATION COUNTERWEIGHT quite heavily. The reference is to my post in early June, Commence Operation Counterweight: Why do I have this feeling that the back-stabbing and petty politics...

Large law firms. Oh sure, they'll give thousands of pro bono hours fighting for the rights of Gitmo detainees, but remember why they are Large law firms. They have Large corporate clients including Large Banks and Large Investment Banks and Large Broker-Dealers who pay them Large Legal Fees so they...

This is the second time this week a reader has e-mailed me referencing one of my early blog posts, the first being “I still remember your ‘death to the Kulaks’ post from a while back!” Thanks to a reader from Seattle who e-mailed me last night...

The anti-1% street agitation is the fulfillment of a process we have seen unfold since Obama's 2008 campaign, a process by which a group of various definitions of wealth is isolated and targeted for demagoguery. It was the Top 5%, then the Top 2%, now it's...

The silent majority. The ones who pay the bills, and the taxes, and the tuitions, and the pensions, and the benefits, for the people who falsely claim to be the 99%. The ones who did not graduate from the school of perpetual expectations and handouts. The ones who...

Think Progress is in a tizzy because Herman Cain told it like it is as to the politics of jealously and envy which are the driving force bechind the Occupy Wall Street movement and the Democratic Party's election strategy. ...

Doubly good. First, because the tweet by CNN reporter Alison Kosik was hysterical, and second, because the humorless leftist reaction (added: here, here) to the tweet caused her to take it down, but it lives on because people grabbed screenshots. ...
